Performing with BUMS


Interested in joining a BUMS Community Band?

We’re amateurs – but we have fun – and you will too when you join us!

You don’t have to be a virtuoso to be a performer in one of our community bands, just willing to practise and participate. The members bring different tastes, genres and ideas to each of our bands. All financial members are eligible to join one of our community bands and be a performing BUM. 

Our community bands represent BUMS Inc and perform all over Brisbane at community events and festivals from Kenilworth and Caboolture to Redland Bay, and enjoy supporting worthy causes like, The Pyjama Foundation, Parkinson’s Queensland, Cure for Brain Cancer and MS Queensland.
